Celebrating 97 years of venerable history and five generations of Oak Park Art League Artist Members, this biannual exhibition presents work by OPAL’s current membership. Artists are invited to submit up to three works that best represent their studio practice. The juror will select one work from each artist to include in this curated show and an exhibition catalog. Professional photography is recommended for submission, as the catalog will serve as record and archive of Artist Member involvement in the years leading to OPAL’s Centennial Anniversary in 2021.
Information for artists:
The application fee is $20 for up to three images of work. One additional image will be accepted for each 3-dimensional piece at no additional cost.
Images must be JPG file (300DPI)
2D artwork (photograph of artwork must exclude framing)
OPAL reserves the right to reject any accepted work that does not clearly represent or match the submission.
Submission fees are non-refundable.
